Be good to see results. It might prove that we don't need all of those pixels, unless you crop a lot......

Yes, we'll see. Most of the way through the first roll, probably finish it off tomorrow. One advantage of having the zoom lens, I guess, is not having to crop too much.

It's certainly not as solid as my H1 - but then just the body of the H1 (without lens) cost ten times as much, so I guess it should do!

Sorry if not on subject, but wifey bought a Leica Bridge recently. have to say (quietly) the resolution is rubbish if you want to crop. Excellent for uncropped photos tho, and the lens range is good. I have to change lenses to keep up with her.

A few years ago I did but a Nikon P90 (I think). But just could not live with the Elephants trunk of the extended lens, So I sold it on Ebay, AND made a small profit......
I guess cropping was an issue to due small sensor size? One thing about the IS-3000 is that with 35mm film it's 'full frame'.
